Scenario: A Narc, his wife and children get in their vehicle to go somewhere. Not long after they are on the road, the Narc begins his argument.
Does this sound familiar?
This is what I call The Captive Audience. The Narc will purposely wait until he has you in a place where you cannot escape from. You are forced to listen to his diatribe!
My NX saved many many fights for when we traveled in the car. It was the perfect opportunity to unleash his wrath!
Typically, a Narc doesn't like to have an audience when unleashing his wrath. That's why I was always bewildered at why he chose many times with the children in the car.
He'd scream, "What are you gonna do? Jump out of the car? You're crazy."
And right there, he immediately implied how he thought I was crazy. It was planting a seed in the brains of my children, too. They began to learn that I was disrespected. And took it! How could I have not? I was in the car.
Initially, I would argue with him. But I quickly learned that it only added fuel to his fire. So, I just learned to sit there. And take it. Inevitably, tears would well up in my eyes. Sure, his words hurt. But my children witnessed their father treating their mother that way. Then he'd say, "Oh, what are you gonna cry now? You little cry baby."
And when we got to where we were going, he got out of the car and acted like nothing was wrong. (See my post on Narc Rage here and why they act like nothing happened.) And I was left with a tear-stained face.
